Basic Econometrics – Damodar N. Gujarati – 4th Edition


The primary objective of the fourth edition of Essentials of Econometrics is to provide a user-friendly introduction to theory and techniques. This text provides a simple and straightforward introduction to econometrics for the beginner.

The book is designed to help understand econometric techniques through extensive examples, careful explanations, and a wide variety of problem material. In each of the editions, I have tried to incorporate major developments in the field in an intuitive and informative way without resort to , , or statistics beyond the introductory level. The fourth edition continues that tradition.
